Me: “Hey, I’m going to the market for a few things. Do you need more coffee creamer?”
Deep and disturbing silence.
Me: “Hello? Did you hear me?”
Mr. Wilkinson (with trembling despair in his voice): “Yes, I heard you. No, don’t get any. I’m done with that stuff. It’s bad for me.”
Me: “What? Why?? Are you kidding me??? You’ve used that stuff for 25 years!”
Mr. Wilkinson: “I gotta get this monkey off my back.”
Happy New Year’s Resolution from Mr. Wilkinson!
As monkeys go, that’s not such a bad one! He has my sympathy and support.
